accessibility – Create tagged and structured PDF files

The accessibility package is intended to create tagged, structured PDF documents from source code. It allows to produce tagged PDF output following Adobe’s PDF-1.5 and 1.6 specifications.

This package is predominantly targeted at documents produced using the KOMA-Script document classes.

However, the author told us towards the end of June 2020: “Based on feedback to the ‘accessibility’ package and discussions with a few folks, I’d like to discourage people from using the package any more. It’s evident that it’s not going to work in it’s current form, and I don’t have the skills or time to update it.
I know the general concept is very important, and so I’m looking at getting support from various funding agencies to employ someone to completely refactor the code in a more future-proof fashion. I’ll coordinate this with the core Team once I have more solid ideas.”
